"I am extremely proud of the effort store staff have put in to achieve this, as well as keeping our social distancing measures in place”.

The Range has put social distancing measures in place to protect staff and customers, ensuring the safety of all those in-store.

Staff have been praised for their dedication to following the safety measures alongside their work in raising the money.

In line with current Government guidelines, additional measures are in-place to make it safe for staff and customers.

These include social distancing markers to help people stay at least 2m apart, sanitising stations at the entrance and contactless card payment where possible.
